Catacombs beneath the Remembrance Garden, Norwood High Street, West Norwood Memorial Park SE27 - Lambeth

Catacombs circa 1837; cemetery laid out circa 1837 by Sir William Tite. A temporary roof has been erected over the entrance to allow the structure to dry out before agreeing repairs. Moisture surveys are ongoing; levels appear to be stabilising/reducing. Discussions are ongoing regarding potential funding sources and long-term use.
